Without my notes to this shot, stolen unexpectedly by Google, I'm afraid I no longer have the details of the artist and related info. Very sorry and not a little bit annoyed! UPDATE on 11/04/18: Thanks to ipernity member, Jim Kerslake, I can now name the artist and the piece: "Siesta" by Sam3 - www.sam3.es/painting.html Many thanks, Jim!

View from my (very occasional) bedroom window, ear…

Dawn, August 2014. St Day, Cornwall. Well, it's still my bedroom window even if I haven't spent more than 10 nights here in the past 5 years! The building in front is the annexe to my parents house. It comprises a good sized ground floor kitchen and on the upper floor bedrooms and a bathroom. This annexe used to be a temporary bedding down place for tin miners who had worked a late shift; the property being in the possession of a tin mine captain. Poldice Valley seen in the distance and with a chimney just visible, was a world centre of arsenic mining and production. Even today, 150 years later , nothing grows there and certainly no houses can be be built on the poisoned land. The life expectancy of the miners was horrendous! Not all Cornwall is romantic!!!

A bit of a shock to open the curtains this morning and see this directly outside the bedroom window! (Essential repairs to the spire, apparently!). Madrid, Alonso Martinez / Almagro.
